Smile Video: Basic Datalogging with Enginuity

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dkDa7-ZbDBw

Made this tonight on request from a member. Hope it helps!

This video is for:
- someone who has never used Enginuity or datalogged their car
- someone wanting a quick primer on the basics of datalogging

This video assumes:
- you have the proper tactrix cable for your application
- you have installed the latest version of the openport drivers for your cable (these install as part of ecuflash)
- you have the latest version of Enginuity and its associated definitions installed
- your car and ECU are in safe state of tune (not going to blow up)
- you have your tactrix cable properly connected to the OBD2 port and to your laptop

Notes:
- my wideband reads erratically at idle because it's clamped to the tailpipe and sees fresh air. it reads normal as soon as exhaust gases begin flowing!
- upload your logs to Google documents, or copy paste them with abbreviated column headers to the forums, using the CODE tags.

Nice job!

I don't know if you are going to develop it further, but for noobs it might be a good idea to show the COM port selection in the logger that they will likely need to change and maybe even how to install the latest logger defs (this is simple but some are computer challenged). Maybe even show how the tactrix cable is connected. Also, I would log "Engine Load (Direct)" rather than "Engine Load (Calculated)" as it the actual load used by the ECU (i.e. more accurate) and will not impact your sampling rate when used instead of the calculated parameter.

good info thanks!

I may do the definitions etc in the EcuFlash demo movie. that does seem to be a sticking point with some users.

How do you get into dashboard mode?!?!?!

Thats the coolest thing I've ever seen and looks super useful. I'm always squinting at red lights to read my data.

go to the bottom of the logger, see the tabs?

make sure you only choose parameters in one tab. otherwise they will all be logged simultaneously (I think)

If you don't have a de-frogger switch, you can use the de-fogger, but it won't be nearly as effective, or nearly as imaginary.

LOL!

here's a question: when I flash my ecu, I plug two plugs in: 1 jumper plug that came with my tactrix cable, and 1 pr of wires together. Is it necessary to do both, when flashing?

if you have a 02-05 WRX I know you do. On mine (05 STI) I just have to connect the green test connectors.

Excellent movie, it really helped me out. I can get eginuity to log and work fine but I can't get ecuflash to read my rom, i think I have the definitions in ecuflash set up incorrectly. I've reinstalled both the cable and ecuflash and the cable is recognized, but when I try to read my ecu a window opens with "read" in grey and "cancel" as the only two options and no reading takes places... I'm waiting for an ecuflash movie i think. Thanks.

ben, I'll be flashing the ECU tomorrow (a couple times, actually).. I'll try to video it..

If my vid cam will work, I'll try to video "reading" the rom from the ecu in ECUFlash, too.

since the profiles for the logger are tab-specific, I created three profiles: logger_dash, logger_graph, and logger, for the respective tabs.

You must have a great presentation skills. Awesome video!

ps: maybe you may want to state what to look for when analyzing the data... maybe top 2-3 parameters that you normally look to identify problems (value, trend, etc)?
